You will need to obtain the necessary forms to get your Pennsylvania vehicle registration. Forms are available online for downloading and at any messenger service office or any Driver and Vehicle Service Center location.
In order to register your vehicle(s), you will need to bring the following items with you:
A valid title for all of the vehicles you want to register in Pennsylvania, issued in your name, from the state you left
Proof of Pennsylvania insurance, such as a valid insurance identification card, declaration page of an insurance policy, a copy of a valid binder or a copy of an application for insurance to the Pennsylvania Assigned Risk Plan for all of the vehicles you will be registering. These documents must indicate both effective and expiration dates.
Form of personal identification
A tracing of the vehicle identification number (VIN) or the verification of the VIN by an inspection mechanic or notary at a dealership.

If you hold a valid title issued in another state and, if you owned the vehicle at least 6 months before moving to Pennsylvania, you will not be required to pay any sales tax when you register your vehicle in Pennsylvania.
If your vehicle was purchased less than 6 months before moving to Pennsylvania, you must pay sales tax based on the difference between the Pennsylvania tax (6% of the purchase price less any trade-in) and any sales tax you paid in the other state, unless that other state’s sales tax is greater.
Vehicle Safety Inspection:
A vehicle newly registered in Pennsylvania must be safely inspected within 10 days of the registration date. Inspections are performed at official inspection stations (usually a repair garage or a service station with a repair shop). Equipment checks include: lights, brakes, horn, tires, safety belts, exhaust system, mirrors, tag mounting, suspension, turn signals, steering, glazing, wipers, and other major parts of your vehicle.
Inspection fees are posted at official inspection stations. These fees do not include repairs to correct vehicle defects.
